Goundie House – Historic Bethlehem Museums and Sites

The home of one of Bethlehem’s early brewers, John Sebastian Goundie, stands on Main Street in downtown Historic Bethlehem. This handsome, Federal-style brick house has been restored and is the setting for changing exhibitions reflecting Bethlehem’s fascinating history.

Now Open: It’s a story of beer, women, and bribes—learn about the history of brewing in Bethlehem through “Bethlehem Brewed & Distilled.” From the stories of early and modern breweries in Bethlehem to Bethlehem’s secret beer caves, this new exhibit takes your group through the brewing process—from grain to glass. Pair your “Bethlehem Brewed & Distilled” experience with an Old Bethlehem Walking Tour.

Historic Bethlehem Museums & Sites is a not-for-profit institution that brings to life three centuries of American history. The story of Historic Bethlehem follows a community rich with European influence as it makes its mark on colonial America and grows into a city embracing tradition and life.

Historic Bethlehem Museums & Sites invites your group to visit any time of the year and discover how this city became a national historic treasure. For information on creating a custom tour experience for your group, please call 610-882-0450 or visit historicbethlehem.org/visit/custom-tours.
